The selfie seems to be an unstoppable force now. Wherever we go, either we need to take one, or we see others taking them. Over the weekend I went to visit some friends and we took a wander through a local park. It felt like every other person we saw had their phone out shooting selfies in the glorious weather. But there’s a time and a place for it.
There are also times and places where it’s definitely not appropriate. The site of the burnt out Grenfell Tower is one of them. Inappropriate or “Disaster Selfies” seem to have become something of a trend in the last couple of years. It’s been happening so much at Grenfell, that local residents are actually putting up signs asking people not to shoot selfies.
